Both @ProduceMime and @ConsumeMime refer to a media type but their
values are both strings. You can apply these annotations to an entity
provider to declare the media types it supports as described in
section 3.1 of the latest spec draft[1].

Not sure I understand your question. Just to be clear, the suggested
change above applies to the type of the mediaType arguments of
EntityProvider.readFrom and EntityProvider.writeTo, not an annotation
